I dont think it's fair to compare any guitarist to Gary Moore. He was unique in his intensity, and to me was the most "musical" for want of a better word of any blues guitarist I ever heard. Maybe due to his rock background.
It's all a personal thing because (and this will rile some people) When I listen to eric clapton play, I feel nothing. I'm impressed with his technical ability, but his playing doesn't affect me emotionally like gary moore did. And yet we all no he's one of the greats. So each to his own and sorry to all the clapton fans.
very tasteful, geez, I'd forgotten all about Beth Hart, they sound incredible.
This is one of my personal faves from GM, Peter green tribute concert
He's got the Strats out again for his latest album which i'm glad to see / hear.
Just got hold of Gary Moore 'Essential Montreux' today. 6 hours of classic Gary over 5 discs... Can't wait to dig into this!
I think Gary Moore had a ton of soul and sincerity in his bluesier stuff. Joe B. is an incredible player who is still expanding his range, and I'd bet that that a greater amount of sincerity in his playing will emerge over time.
If possible, what does "sincerity in playing" mean?????? I either like what I hear or I don't...but I've never been able to associate one's playing with concepts such as "sincerity". Maybe I am missing something essential. And, to further my ignorance...when you've been a professional player as long as Joe has been....at what point do you develop the aforementioned "sincerity"????
